The Earl of Wessex, along with his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, his daughter Lady Louise Windsor and son James spent 10 days at Balmoral Castle this summer. During their holiday, James “delighted” his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II with his skill at fly-fishing in the River Dee. It is a pastime reportedly beloved by Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, who passed away in 2002.

“Edward is not as keen because he’s not as patient, which you need to be when fishing for salmon, even in the plentiful Dee.”

Meanwhile, James’ sister Louise, 16, spent her time taking gentle rides around the hills with the Queen, with whom she shares a love of horses.
